A Four-Year, Coeducational, 
Liberal Arts College 


"The Search for Identity" 

"The justification for a university," said Alfred 
North Whitehead, 

"is that it preserves the connection between 
knowledge and the zest of life, by uniting the 
young and the old in the imaginative consid- 
eration of learning. The university imparts 
information, but it imparts it imaginatively. 
This atmosphere of excitement, arising from 
imaginative consideration, transforms knowl- 
edge. A fact is no longer a bare fact: it is 
invested with all its possibilities. It is no 
longer a burden on the memory: it is 'ener- 
gising' as the poet of our dreams and as the 
architect of our purposes." 

At Florida Presbyterian College you can be the 
"poet" of your own dreams and the "architect" 
of your own purposes. In formulating these pur- 
poses and dreams you will need to weigh values, 
plan courses of action, make decisions, suffer 
consequences. In investing facts with all of their 
possibilities, remember that force and strength 
without humane direction are too terrible to con- 
template. The challenge of our day is to civilize 
the vast, raw, irrational forces which have been 
released — to prevent these forces and tensions 
from tearing us asunder. Seek and find, therefore, 
the relationship between freedom and duty, dis- 
cipline and responsibility. 

No man is an island unto himself. Florida 
Presbyterian is a community of thoughtful and 
concerned human beings — a community wherein 
each individual is expected to function as a con- 

structive and creative force for good — where 
spiritual, as well as intellectual and emotional 
needs are recognized and hopefully met. Plumb 
the depths of the human spirit and inevitably we 
encounter our Destiny. Education at Florida Pres- 
byterian College is, then, first and foremost, an 
encounter — an encounter with one's self, one's 
fellow man and one's God. 

The college stands in the finest and most noble 
of Christian traditions in its concern for the in- 
dividual. You will be recognized here as a person 
— as a Divinely created, free, human being. So 
be imaginative. Be daring. Be thoughtful. Be con- 
cerned. Be aware of a moral imperative. The 
mutual interaction of all your experiences at 
Florida Presbyterian should lead to a disciplined, 
balanced, intellectually vital, spiritually viable, 
"examined" life. 

You join a community which is young in both 
years and spirit. Much remains to be done. We 
perceive our role as building and creating, rather 
than administering. The relationship between 
knowledge and the "zest of life" can be pre- 
served only when we care — only when we invest 
ourselves in things that are important to us. So 
get involved, seek relevance. 

The key word at Florida Presbyterian College is 
"search." Search implies that something is un- 
known. There are poems unwritten, songs not 
composed, discoveries unmade, human hopes and 
dreams unfulfilled. As you seek the deeper mean- 
ings of human freedom, take your work seriously. 
Joy in intellectual curiosity; develop a self-con- 
fidence, not of arrogance, but one which springs 
from disciplined study, serious involvement in 
community living, a respect for the rights of 
others and faith in God's purpose for Man — a 
self-confidence characterized by intellectual vigor, 
spiritual integrity and social awareness. 

It is in this spirit and in this context that I 
welcome you to this community of concerned 
scholars and seekers.

Free Men In a Free Society 

The liberal arts are designed to fit a human 
being to live the life of a free man in a free 
society. Such a man is responsible for the 
use he makes of his freedom and also for 
maintaining his own freedom and that of 
others. Therefore, he must have an under- 
standing of men and of human society. He 
must be sensitive to the creative dimensions 
of the human spirit on both an individual 
and a social level. He must be free of the 
narrowness of experience and rigidity of 
personality that would blind him to the feel- 
ings and accomplishments of those who are 
different. With a sound appreciation of the 
economic and technological foundations of 
society, he must be liberated from bondage 
to them by a deep awareness of the spiritual 
dimension of human experience. 

The Community of Learning 

The Florida Presbyterian College community 
is one in which the resources and incentives 
for learning are strong. Each student as- 

sumes the basic responsibility for making 
the best possible use of the resources of the 
community in his effort to learn. Each stu- 
dent has his own hopes and dreams and his 
learning is guided by them, and at the same 
time he is a member of a community of in- 
quiring and creative minds, at the college 
and beyond the college. He learns and 
creates within the critical and sympathetic 
view of his fellows, some of whom are more, 
and some less, experienced than he. 

Within the community of learning at 
Florida Presbyterian College both conven- 
tional and unconventional methods of in- 
quiry are used. In guiding our students' de- 
velopment we afford them many opportuni- 
ties to learn emotional independence and to 
practice individual responsibility. The col- 
lege cherishes freedom of thought and insists 
upon respect for human dignity. 

Throughout the intellectual and social life 
of the college we find the vital interplay of 
the individual and the community. In the 
most individual learning experience, the one- 
to-one meeting of learner and teacher in 
conference, both are responsive to the stand- 

ards of the community of learning; in the 
largest lecture the seats are filled by individ- 
uals each with his own background, under- 
standing, and goals. In meeting its responsi- 
bility to its students, the college uses a great 
range of learning situations, materials, and 
devices. By their initiative and diligence the 
students in turn meet their responsibility to 
themselves and to the community of which 
they are part. 

Liberal Arts Curriculum 

The liberal arts curriculum, which includes 
delving deeply into an area of major interest, 
leads directly to a wide variety of opportuni- 
ties for interesting and socially constructive 
work or to further professional and graduate 
studies. Of the members of the five classes 
that have graduated since the founding of 
the college, about half have undertaken 
some form of graduate study immediately 
after graduation. Graduates of the college 
are currently studying a variety of subjects, 
including medicine, law, and divinity, in 
graduate school; others are teaching in col- 
leges and secondary schools; while others 
are meeting successfully the challenges of 
the world of business and commerce, or 
serving the community as civil servants or 
social workers. The success of the college is 
measured in large part by the degree to 
which it enables its graduates to find satis- 
faction in their contributions to the better- 
ment of society and the quality of human 

Florida Presbyterian College expects that 
its graduates will realize that an education 
does not end in four years, but ideally con- 
tinues during an entire lifetime. 

Students and Faculty 

Certain kinds of curriculum and methods are 
appropriate only with excellent students and 
the college seeks such students. The college 
has few rigid requirements, but expects pro- 
spective students to have considerable at- 
tainment in academic subjects. In addition to 
scholarly achievement, students should dis- 
play breadth of interest and excellence of 
character. Students who enter the college 
should be eager to grow intellectually and 
spiritually, and must be ready to accept re- 
sponsibility for their own learning and for 
constructive participation in a community of 
learning. The faculty are well qualified. In 
addition, they have come to Florida Presby- 
terian because of their belief in the value of 
liberal education and because of their desire 
to work with students. The typical Florida 
Presbyterian College professor has a genuine 
interest in the personal and scholarly growth 
of his students. 


I IK IM Core Courses 

A Christian Community 

Florida Presbyterian College was founded in 
1958 by the two Presbyterian Synods of the 
state of Florida. Its foundation and its main- 
tenance are part of the ongoing ministry of 
the Church to the world that Christ came to 
serve. Its doors are open to qualified stu- 
dents of all persuasions. It is inconsistent 
with Presbyterian tradition to claim perfec- 
tion either for individuals or for communi- 
ties. Nevertheless, the college believes that 
its Christian heritage is both vital and essen- 
tial. We have a vision of the college as a 
community in constant interaction with the 
world around it which prepares dedicated 
people to go into the world to witness in re- 
sponse to their own callings. 

During each of his four years, the student 
takes a course of study which is also being 
undertaken by all the rest of his classmates. 
This is the interdisciplinary Core course 
which is taught cooperatively by professors 
of all academic disciplines of the college. 
The aims of the course are to promote a 
community of learners, demonstrate the in- 
terrelatedness of knowledge, and to encour- 
age the student to think about the important 
questions of the nature of man, his relation 
to God, to nature, and to his fellow men. 

The 4-1-4 Calendar 

Florida Presbyterian College uses a 4-1-4 
calendar. This is a shorthand way of sum- 
marizing the major features of the calendar. 
There are three terms: fall, winter, and 
spring. During fall and spring term most stu- 
dents study four subjects, whereas during 
the middle, or winter term they work inten- 
sively on a single subject. The fall term be- 
gins around Labor Day and ends just before 
Christmas; winter term takes up the month 
of January; and spring term lasts from the 
first of February until Memorial Day. 

Winter Term 

The winter term is a special four-week 
period of independent study for all under- 
graduates. With examinations for the fall 
term over before Christmas, January is free 
for intensive study. 

Designed to develop the qualities of self- 
discipline in pursuits requiring the student to 
be the prime explorer, the winter term asks 
him to work without the customary routine 
of classroom and lecture hall on a single 
problem of particular interest to him. With 
guidance he chooses and delimits his subject, 
gathers his material, organizes it, and pre- 
sents it as a paper, a short story, a painting, 
or a piece of laboratory apparatus. 

During winter term each professor directs 
the activities of fifteen to twenty students. 
Some students are enrolled in projects de- 
signed by professors and others design their 
own and obtain the sponsorship of a profes- 
sor. Projects must have academic or creative 
merit and are judged by rigorous standards. 
Throughout the four weeks the professor is 
available for consultation and guidance. 

The intensive, independent study of winter 
term supplements the extensive work of the 
courses in fall and spring term. In recent 
years a large number of other colleges have 
followed the example of Florida Presbyte- 
rian College in adopting a winter term. The 
fact that other colleges also have the pro- 
gram makes it possible for our students to 
spend one of their winter terms on the cam- 
pus of another college, while a student of 
that college comes to Florida Presbyterian. 
This possibility of exchange vastly increases 
the range of projects open to our students. 
Florida Presbyterian College also cooperates 
with other 4-1-4 colleges in sponsoring win- 
ter term projects abroad or in major cities in 
the United States. Recently, cooperative win- 
ter term projects have been offered in Lon- 
don, Ireland, Jamaica, Mexico, New York 
and Washington. 

Independent Preparation 

By preparing himself to demonstrate profi- 
ciency in an examination, and by independ- 
ent or directed study, a student is able to 
advance his education during times when he 
is off campus, and receive full credit for 
work done independently. Of course he is 
also free to prepare himself in these ways 
while he is in residence on campus. 

Demonstration of proficiency: Students 
with advanced levels of proficiency in cer- 
tain areas may receive course credit or ad- 
vanced standing by successful performance 
in an examination. Students taking such 
examinations will be judged on the basis of 
their demonstrated proficiency and not on the 
basis of their formal academic experience. In 
many areas students can prepare for exami- 
nations independently and receive recognition 
for their work without attending lectures and 

Independent study: A student who desires 
to study a topic in which no regular instruc- 
tion is offered may obtain the sponsorship of 
a professor under whom he will study that 
topic independently. As students reach ad- 
vanced levels in their major subjects and re- 
lated areas, they often develop special inter- 
ests that can best be furthered by planning a 
course of independent study. A student un- 
dertaking independent study signs a contract 
which is also signed by his sponsoring pro- 
fessor. The contract indicates what the sub- 
ject of study is and what criteria will be 
used in evaluating the success of the project. 

Directed study: Sometimes students want 
to study a subject in which a course is 
offered but, for any of a number of reasons, 
prefer not to take the course. In many areas 

of the curriculum such students have the 
option of taking the course by directed 
study. In directed study the student follows 
a course syllabus and submits work for eval- 
uation at periodic intervals. He covers much 
the same ground that is covered in a stand- 
ard course, but works at his own pace under 
the supervision of the professor. It is also 
possible to take some courses by directed 
study that are never offered as regular 
courses or are offered infrequently. A set of 
directed study guides has recently been pre- 
pared at the college with assistance from a 
grant from the Ford Foundation. 

Studies Abroad 

To improve our students' understanding of 
the world community as well as their ap- 
preciation of their own country, Florida 
Presbyterian College makes available a vari- 
ety of opportunities for study abroad. The 
college annually sponsors a series of Sum- 
mer Institutes Abroad in Europe, Asia and 
the Americas. Summer Institutes are inten- 
sive study-travel experiences which are 
developed in cooperation with institutions 
abroad. Upon satisfactory completion of aca- 
demic requirements, credit is awarded by 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

There are opportunities for study abroad 
during each winter term. In some instances 
advanced students may travel independently 
on programs approved by the faculty. 

As a member of the Associated Mid-Florida 
Colleges, Florida Presbyterian invites its stu- 
dents to participate in year abroad programs 
in Neuchatel, Freiburg and Madrid. 


Florida Presbyterian College awards the de- 
grees of Bachelor of Arts to students in the 
Humanities and Social Sciences and Bache- 
lor of Science to students in Mathematics 
and the Natural Sciences. 

Normal Program of Study 

The bachelor's degree is granted upon 
demonstration of proficiency in: 

1. The interdisciplinary Core program 

2. The third year level of a language other 
than the student's native language 

3. A major subject and its related fields 

4. Physical education skills 

5. Reading skills 

Ordinarily a student must complete four 
years in residence and successfully complete 
32 courses and four winter term programs. A 
4-1-4 program is the normal minimal aca- 
demic load for all students. Students desiring 
to transfer into Florida Presbyterian College 
may be credited with as much as two years 
of college work undertaken elsewhere. 

Considerable freedom in the manner of ful- 
filling these requirements is possible. Any 
student, with approval of his faculty advisor, 
may petition the Academic Affairs Commit- 
tee to substitute other experiences for one or 
more of the 32 courses and four winter term 
programs. It is possible and often desirable 
for students to obtain experience in ways 
other than passing courses. 

The Five Proficiencies 

As stated before, all graduates of Florida 
Presbyterian College must demonstrate profi- 
ciency in five areas: 

1. The Interdisciplinary Core Program: 

One course during each semester of resi- 
dence is devoted to this interdisciplinary 
program which functions as an integrating 
force for the individual and for the campus 
as a community of scholars. Each student 
moves from close examination of specified 
materials into elected studies of cultures and 

2. Foreign Language: Each student is ex- 
pected to have a reading and speaking 
knowledge of a language other than his na- 


tive language. The level of proficiency ex- 
pected is operationally defined as the level 
normally attained at the end of three full 
years of college study. Of course, many stu- 
dents have already studied languages and 
can satisfy this requirement upon entrance 
or after a year or two of study at the college. 

3. A Major Subject and its Related Fields: 

Each student must complete study in a major 
field. Major requirements are specified in 
terms of courses or proficiencies. In his sen- 
ior year each student must either prepare a 
senior thesis or take a comprehensive exami- 
nation depending upon the desires of the 
student and the consent of the faculty in the 
major discipline. 

The college offers majors in the foJJowing 


Humanities; Art, Languages, Literature, 
Music, Philosophy, Religion; 
History and Social Sciences: Economics, 
History, Political Science, Management, 
Psychology, Social Psychology, Sociology 
and Anthropology; 

Mathematics and the Natural Sciences: Bi- 
ology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics; 
East Asian Area Studies. 

Students may also pursue a divisional or 
interdivisional major consisting of ten or 
more courses of v^hich six will represent 
concentration in one discipline with the ad- 


ditional courses related to this area of con- 

4. A Physical Education Lecture Program: 

This program is offered in the spring of the 
freshman year and students are expected to 
master the information presented in that pro- 
gram. In addition, all students must demon- 
strate ability to swim and proficiency in three 
other physical activity skills selected from a 
large number of skills in which instruction is 

5. Reading Skills: A reading laboratory is 
available to help all students improve their 
reading speed and comprehension. All stu- 
dents must demonstrate an ability to read at 
a rate of at least 425 words per minute with 
a comprehension of 70%. 

Teacher Education 

Florida Presbyterian's innovative program of 
professional training for secondary school 
teachers has attracted much interest. The 
program, which has been approved by the 
Department of Education of the State of 
Florida, emphasizes direct involvement in 
the teaching process. Students in this pro- 
gram are carefully screened and counseled. 
During the junior year they are provided 
with appropriate teaching responsibilities in 
the public schools. As seniors, they engage 
in a professional term which provides an in- 
tensive classroom-oriented curriculum that 
involves the participation of distinguished 
public school teachers and administrators. A 
teacher education laboratory is equipped 
with a curriculum library and the latest edu- 
cational media. It serves as a work room for 
student teachers and the locus of the infor- 
mal exchange of ideas. 


Jefferson House Program 

Beginning in the fall of 1969, a limited num- 
ber of students will be accepted in the Jeffer- 
son House program. In this program students 
will be exempted from the formal graduation 
requirements and allowed to design a four- 
year course of study for themselves. The 
course of study will be designed coopera- 
tively by the student and one or more of the 
senior fellows of Jefferson House. It is ex- 
pected to be a course of liberal studies that 
will meet the particular needs, talents and 
interests of the student. Jefferson House 
seeks, as junior fellows, students who have a 
clear sense of direction and who have dem- 
onstrated self-discipline in seeking objec- 

Summer School 

Florida Presbyterian College offers a six- 
week summer program which includes 
courses in several disciplines including 
mathematics, literature, and foreign lan- 
guages. The summer language program pro- 
vides an opportunity for intensive work in 
understanding, speaking, reading and writ- 
ing. Native informants, language tables and 
practice in conversation are features of the 
program. Programs are offered in German, 
French, and Spanish. 

In many disciplines there is opportunity 
for independent and directed study during 
the summer. Summer school is open to all 
qualified undergraduates and many courses 
are open to capable high school juniors and 
seniors. The complete recreational facilities 
of the college are open to summer school 
students. The 1970 summer session begins 
June 15 and continues through July 24. 



Scholarly and creative activity contain their 
own rewards. In order to help focus the at- 
tention of the student on these activities and 
away from competition for grade point aver- 
ages, the faculty of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege have adopted a simple system of evalu- 
ation. In evaluating students' work, we use 
the grades of HP — High Pass, P — Pass, and 
F— Fail. 

In addition to providing an overall grade, 
professors report their analysis of the par- 
ticular strengths and weaknesses of the stu- 


The Community 
Location and Availability 

Pinellas County is a peninsula, with offshore 
islands, bounded on the west by the Gulf of 
Mexico and on the east and south by Tampa 
Bay. The city of St. Petersburg occupies the 
southern end of the peninsula and the Florida 
Presbyterian College campus is located near 
the southern tip of the city of St. Petersburg. 
Although the vicinity of the campus is 
sparsely populated, the campus is within the 
city limits of St. Petersburg. The city is read- 
ily accessible by road, via Interstates 75 and 
4 and also via Route US 19, which passes just 
in front of the campus. Tampa International 
Airport, served by several major airlines, is 
a forty-five minute drive from the campus. 
Charter flights can land at the St. Petersburg- 
Clearwater Airport and small planes can use 
the Albert Whitted Airport in downtown St. 
Petersburg. There is also rail service into the 
city. The population of St. Petersburg is 
212,200 and the total population of the Tampa 
Bay area, known as the Suncoast, is 930,344. 
For many years the warm sun, clean air 
and pleasant beaches of the area have at- 
tracted winter visitors to St. Petersburg. In 
recent years the attractions of the city have 
become more diversified as civic minded 
local citizens have built the Museum of Fine 
Arts and formed an opera association and a 
symphony orchestra. The city has recently 
built the beautiful Bayfront Center with two 
large auditoriums which accommodate a 
variety of cultural and sporting events, from 
ballet to ice hockey. The Ringling Museum, 
an excellent collection of art treasures col- 
lected by the Ringling Brothers; the Asolo 

Theatre, the repertory theatre of the State of 
Florida; and the Circus Museum are located 
in Sarasota, a half-hour away, across the 
Sunshine Skyway which spans Tampa Bay. 

For many years one of the local newspa- 
pers has had a standing offer to give away 
the paper any day that the sun does not 
shine. This offer has spread the fame of the 
St. Petersburg climate, which is an excellent 
one for work and study, as well as for relax- 



Florida Presbyterian is a residential college. 
Most of its students live on the breeze-swept 
bayfront campus in air-conditioned buildings. 

The library at present contains more than 
84,000 volumes and is increased each year 
tov^ard a goal of 100,000 volumes. Campus 
facilities include tw^o teaching auditoriums, 
one equipped for science demonstrations; a 
language laboratory for classroom work or in- 
dependent study; science classroom labora- 
tories and individual laboratories. The Thea- 
tre for Performing Arts was completed in the 
Spring of 1969. A well-equipped music center 
includes individual studios, choral and instru- 
mental rooms. Athletic facilities include an 
AAU swimming pool, soccer field, tennis 
courts, sailboats, canoes and practice golf 
links. A Physical Education building and gym- 
nasium will be constructed during 1969-70. 

Religious Life 

Florida Presbyterian College seeks to create 
an atmosphere enabling the Christian faith 
to be the cornerstone and the central focus of 
the total academic community. To accomplish 
this purpose the college constantly strives to 

a consistent, prayerful search to understand 
the meaning of the Christian faith; 
a fellowship of the total academic commu- 
nity joined in common worship and in the 
search for truth; 

a concern for the life and mission of the 
universal church and the encouragement of 
responsible participation by all her mem- 

the compulsion to relate prophetically all 
areas of life to the Christian faith. 

Religious activities are open to all, "seek- 
ers" and "believers" alike, regardless of 
church affiliation or lack of it. The program 
seeks to involve students at every level of 
interest, commitment and maturity. 

All aspects of the college's religious pro- 
gram are voluntary. The chaplain, individual 
faculty members, students and choir, partici- 
pate in daily worship services, conducted for 
the entire college community. 

By planning and conducting services, stu- 
dents and faculty have the opportunity for a 
better understanding of the meaning of 
worship. Consideration of campus, commu- 
nity, national and international problems from 
the standpoint of Christian faith provides an 
approach to religious relevance. Students also 
have an opportunity to take part in regional 
and national conferences and ecumenical 

Florida Presbyterian College seeks to guide 
the student toward an intelligent and respon- 
sible Christian commitment in all areas of 

The Student Association 

The Student Association carries the respon- 
sibility of student government at Florida 
Presbyterian College. The major policy mak- 
ing bodies of the Student Association are the 
Legislative Council, composed of all the 
presidents of the residential houses, and the 
Executive Council, composed of the five 
elected officers of the Student Association. 
All students belong to the Association and 
the activities of the Association are financed 
by the $30 activities fee paid by each stu- 
dent at the beginning of every school year as 
part of the comprehensive charges. 

Through its Operations Board, the Student 
Association conducts campus social activi- 
ties, including weekend dances and movies. 
The Student Association is actively involved 
in the ongoing re-examination of the social 
and academic life of the college, as well as 
in community service and public relations. 
The Association seeks the widest possible 
student participation in its programs. 

Honor System 

The Honor Code calls for responsibility and 
maturity in the actions of students in all 
phases of student life. It often demands that 
students place concern for the welfare of the 
community above personal interests. Infrac- 
tions of the Honor Code are reported to the 
Student Court, either by the offender himself 
or by other members of the community. The 
provisions of the Honor Code are described 
in detail in the Student Handbook. 


The Florida Presbyterian College student 
body is responsible for three major student 
publications. The Trident, a weekly student 
newspaper, is published by the students for 
the entire college community. The campus 
literary magazine, Incite, is published at 
least twice a year and contains the literary 
efforts of both the students and faculty 
members. The yearbook, Logos, is published 
annually by a student staff. 


The editors of these three publications are 
elected by the student body during the 
spring semester. Each year a Student Hand- 
book is published by the college, designed as 
an informative publication for new students 
at the college. Student operated publications 
are coordinated through the Student Publica- 
tions Board, which is comprised of students, 
faculty and administrative members of the 

Sports For All 

The Intercollegiate Athletic Program pro- 
vides valuable experience to those students 
who possess superior physical skills and de- 
sire to represent the institution in formal 
competition. The sports included in the pro- 
gram are basketball, golf, tennis, judo, fenc- 
ing, baseball, swimming, cross-country, sail- 
ing and soccer. Florida Presbyterian College 
is a member of the National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association. 

Schedules are arranged with most of the 
Florida colleges and other senior colleges 
throughout the South. The annual Suncoast 
Classic Basketball Tournament, the Awards 
Dinner and the Spring Sports Day are a few 
of the highlights of the Sports Program. 

Intercollegiate athletics are entirely under 
the control of the college and organized and 
administered by the Athletic Department. 
The Faculty Athletic Committee supervises all 
schedules. It also gives attention to the proper 
relation of athletic activities to the academic 
ideals and objectives of the college. 

In addition to the required physical educa- 
tion for freshmen and sophomores, an inte- 
gral part of the curriculum, the college spon- 

sors an extensive intramural-extramural 
program in 17 different team and individual 
sports for both men and women. Nearly 70 
per cent of the student body takes part in 
this program. 


The theatre program at Florida Presbyterian 
College is centered in a Theatre Workshop in 
which all students are invited to participate. 
Performances are scheduled throughout the 
year: major productions presented with full 
staging and under professional discipline; in- 
formal experiments, readings and exercises 
coordinated with the Core program and 
other projects. Emphasis is placed upon the 
contemporary development of the theatre 

and upon its engagement with active intel- 
lectual, political, social and religious issues. 

The Bininger Center for the Performing 
Arts provides an unusual laboratory for thr 
theatre program. It includes an auditorium 
with flexible stage and lighting system, a re- 
hearsal studio, a shop for the construction of 
scenery, a coordinated center with dressing 
rooms, costume shop, offices, and a confer- 
ence room. 

Artist Series 

The college sponsors an annual Artist Series 
which brings to the Bayfront Center in St. 
Petersburg outstanding musical and dramatic 
performers. The 1969-70 program of six con- 
certs will include the Houston Symphony Or- 


chestra, conducted by Andre Previn, and 
the National Players of Washington in "King 
Lear." The college also sponsors chamber arts 
performances on campus during the year. 

Lectures and Films 

The Core program, the academic societies 
and various associations and clubs bring 
guest speakers and films throughout the 
year. Generally speaking, these programs are 
open to the college community. Among the 
societies that bring special programs to the 
campus are the Social Science Forum, the 
Chemistry, Biology and Physics Clubs, Pi Mu 
Epsilon, honorary mathematical society, and 
three honorary language societies. Delta Phi 
Alpha [German], Sigma Delta Pi (Spanish] 
and Eta Sigma Phi (Classics]. Several groups, 
including the Student Association, offer film 


The counseling program reflects the college 
aim of developing concerned and effective 
individuals. The emphasis is on the individ- 
ual student and his capacity to work with, 
assist and learn from other members of the 

community. On the basis of information 
gained in the admissions process and from 
tests given during freshman orientation, the 
Director of Counseling selects the most ap- 
propriate faculty advisor for each student. 
During the orientation program, the advisor 
meets with the student and helps him to 
plan his course schedule. During the year he 
holds additional conferences to discuss mat- 
ters important to college adjustment and 

Faculty advisors form an integral part of 
the counseling program, and through them 
students have access to a full range of coun- 
seling services. Each incoming student also 
has a Freshman Advisory Council (FAC] 
member assigned to him. The FAC aids his 
advisees in making the adjustment to cam- 
pus living. 

Two assistants to the Dean of Women live 
in the women's residence complexes and 
counsel students. Carefully selected upper- 
class students serve as resident advisors in 
the residence complexes. 

A counseling center is available to offer 
confidential professional help to students 
having vocational or personal problems. Spe- 
cial group sessions are also held on improv- 


ing study techniques, major and career plan- 
ning, pre-marital counseling and problems of 
transition from high school to college. 

A Career Advisory Office assists students 
in obtaining permanent positions after grad- 
uation. It arranges visits for representatives 
of companies, agencies and graduate schools 
seeking personal interviews with students. In 
addition, the Career Advisory Office under- 
takes special activities to assist graduates 
who seek opportunities in teaching. 

Information about summer employment 
and part-time jobs is also available. 

Medical Services 

Students have access to college physicians at 
daily scheduled clinics. Registered nurses are 
present at the health center on a twenty-four 
hour basis to assist the student in health 
needs. In addition to the out-patient clinic a 
fourteen bed in-patient service is part of the 
health center. Cases requiring more extensive 
care than is available at the health center are 
admitted to Mound Park Hospital (700 beds] 
in St. Petersburg. 


A resident student may keep an automobile 
on or near the campus, with exceptions as 

Mo student who is failing to make satis- 
factory progress toward graduation may 
keep an automobile. 

No student who has been placed on pro- 
bation by a student court may keep an au- 

Students who keep an automobile on cam- 
pus must pay an annual parking fee of $20. 

Dormitory Regulations 

The young men and women in residence 
learn from their friends and associates as 
well as their professors. They acquire under- 
standing, leadership and tolerance and they 
practice free, democratic choice of action. In 
line with these goals and aims of the college, 
life in the residence halls is less structured 
and more oriented toward autonomous gov- 
ernment. All sophomore, junior and senior 
women (and those over 21 years of age] set 
their own individual curfew hours. Women 
students are encouraged to register their des- 
tination when leaving the campus. 

The seven dormitory complexes composed 
of four houses each are capable of housing 
968 students. Each house has in residence a 
resident advisor (an upperclassman] who is 
in charge of the house. Two adult women 
resident counselors live on campus and may 
be contacted at any time. 

In accord with the educational autonomy 
of the residence halls, each house (composed 
of approximately 34 students] is free to 
make its own decision regarding being open 


to visitors of the opposite sex on Friday, 
Saturday and Sunday. Students not wishing 
to participate in such a visitation policy may 
keep their individual dorm rooms locked. 

Alcoholic Beverages 

Florida law prohibits the sale of alcohol to 
persons under 21. No one is allowed to 
possess or use alcoholic beverages on cam- 


Any student who uses, possesses, sells or 
purchases narcotic drugs, including mari- 
juana, is subject to dismissal from the col- 
lege. Florida law attaches penalties to such 

Admission to Florida Presbyterian College is 
based upon past academic performance in 
mathematics, science, literature, language 
and social studies; achievement on exarriina- 
tions; and personal qualifications such as 
character, special talents, range of interest, 
maturity and personal development. The 
ability which the student has to profit from 
and contribute to the learning community is 
emphasized. Anyone deemed undesirable 
because of his conduct and character may be 
refused admission or, as a student, may be 
requested to withdraw from the college at 
any time. 

Procedures For Application 

1. The candidate for admission to Florida 
Presbyterian College should initiate his ap- 
plication for admission by requesting the ap- 
plication form and transcript form from the 
Director of Admissions. 

2. The formal application for admission 
must be completed and returned to the Di- 
rector of Admissions with an application fee 
of $10. [The fee is not refundable.] The ap- 
plicant must request the proper administra- 
tive officer of the high school from which he 
is to be graduated to send a transcript of his 
record to the Director of Admissions of 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

3. Applicants must arrange to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test offered by the Col- 
lege Entrance Examination Board. The re- 
sults of the tests should be submitted to the 
Director of Admissions of the college. Scho- 
lastic Aptitude Test scores from a testing in 
the junior year may be used to admit stu- 
dents before the December test results are 
processed. Florida Presbyterian College rec- 


ommends, but does not require, that appli- 
cants take the following Achievement Tests: 
Mathematics I or II and English. 

Testing centers throughout the country 
give the Scholastic Aptitude Test at specified 
times. At least six w^eeks before the date of 
any of the tests, the candidate should apply 
directly to the College Entrance Examination 
Board, Box 592, Princeton, New^ Jersey. The 
Board sends an information booklet giving 
full details about testing centers and the 
tests available, and v^ill mail the test results 
directly to the colleges designated by the 

The applicant for admission to the fresh- 
man class should have demonstrated aca- 
demic competence in a high school or pre- 
paratory school accredited by a state or re- 
gional accrediting agency. Even though the 
academic record will not be judged primarily 
on specific units of work, students entering 
Florida Presbyterian College are expected to 
have, generally: four years of English, three 
years of mathematics, two years of language, 
one year of history and two years of science. 

Notification of Acceptance 

The Admissions Office of Florida Presby- 
terian College will prepare a file on each 
candidate for admission. This compilation 
will include the original request for an appli- 
cation, transcripts from the high school or 
preparatory school, test scores, personal re- 
commendations and any other pertinent data 
submitted by the applicant or gathered by 
the Admissions Office. 

The Admissions Committee of Florida 
Presbyterian College meets at regular inter- 
vals during the school year. The first of the 
regular meetings takes place in October, and 




if a candidate for admission has completed 
his formal appHcation, including a high 
school transcript which is complete through 
the junior year and Scholastic Aptitude Test 
scores, it is possible for the Committee to act 
upon the application at that time. Accept- 
ance by the Committee at this time does not 
mean that the candidate is obligated to at- 
tend Florida Presbyterian College. 

When an application for admission is sub- 
mitted to the Admissions Committee and ac- 
tion has been taken, the Director of Admis- 
sions will notify the candidate of the status 
of his application. The candidate may be ac- 
cepted pending successful completion of his 
senior year, he may be denied admission to 
Florida Presbyterian College, or he may be 
requested to supply additional information 
which will help the Admissions Committee 

make a final decision. Candidates who are 
for any reason in doubt about the status of 
their application should write directly to the 
Director of Admissions. 

A visit to the Florida Presbyterian College 
campus is highly recommended. Please tele- 
phone or write to the Admissions Office for 
an appointment. 

Advanced Placement Program 

Courses will be honored at Florida Presby- 
terian College on the basis of scores on the 
Advanced Placement Examination adminis- 
tered by the College Entrance Examination 
Board. Scores of four and five will automati- 
cally certify the student in the course 
covered by the examination. Scores of three 
and two will be referred to the staff of the 
appropriate discipline for recommendations 


concerning possible credit. No credit will be 
allowed for scores of one. 

Transfer Admission 

A student at another college or university 
wishing to transfer to Florida Presbyterian 
College must complete the requirements for 
admission already listed, and submit a tran- 
script of his college record with a catalogue 
and a statement from the college of his aca- 
demic standing and personal qualifications. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may sub- 
mit these scores or arrange to retake this ex- 
amination. If the applicant has not taken the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test, he must arrange to 
do so. All applicants must submit results of 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test to the Director 
of Admissions of Florida Presbyterian Col- 

The transfer of credit from other institu- 
tions of higher education approved by the 
regional accrediting agency depends upon 
the correspondence of the courses to those 
offered at Florida Presbyterian College and 
the approval of the academic division con- 
cerned. Grades below C are not acceptable 
for transfer. Students wishing to transfer for 
spring term must have initiated the applica- 
tion before January 1. 


Candidate's Reply 

All candidates (including financial aid ap- 
plicants] will deposit $50 with the Director 
of Admissions by May 1, if admitted prior to 
that date. Applicants admitted after May 1 
will be expected to make this deposit within 
two weeks after acceptance. This money, 
though not refundable, is applied toward the 
comprehensive charges upon enrollment. 

A medical examination form will be sent 
to each candidate who has paid the $50 ac- 
ceptance fee. This form should be completed 
and returned to the Director of Admissions 
before the due date which is listed at the top 
of the form. No student will be allowed to 
register until this form is completed and on 


All new students, freshmen and transfers, 
will be asked to report to the campus for 
orientation. The orientation period offers an 
opportunity for meeting with college staff, 
pre-registration, course counseling and 
placement testing. Information about the ori- 
entation will be mailed on July 1 to all appli- 
cants who have paid the $50 acceptance fee. 



A college education of high intellectual chal- 
lenge is of lasting value and, like most things 
of value, is costly. Only ignorance is more 
expensive. Private, non-tax-supported institu- 
tions such as Florida Presbyterian College 
make every effort to keep the cost of educa- 
tion down and as a result, the student pays 
only a portion of the actual expense of his 
education. The portions paid by the student 
are as follows: 

Annual Expenses 

Resident Student 

Comprehensive charges — $3,015 (double 

Comprehensive charges — $3,115 (single 

Non-Resident Students 

Comprehensive charges — $1,993 

These charges include cost of room and 
board, post office box, library, athletic activi- 
ties, health program, laboratory operations, 
studio facilities, accident and health insur- 
ance, guidance program, and state food sales 
tax. All rooms are air-conditioned during the 
months of September, October, November, 
March, April, and May. The college assumes 
no liability for utility breakdown over which 
it has no control. All students living on cam- 
pus are required to deposit $15 for room 
breakage and $1 for key. 

An assessment of $30 has been voted by 
the students to underwrite student sponsored 
programs, publications, and similar student 
functions. The Student Association has au- 
thorized the Comptroller's Office to collect 
this assessment which is in addition to the an- 
nual expenses. This $30 is required of all 
students and is non-refundable upon payment. 


Extra Fees 

All new students are charged an orienta- 
tion fee of $12. Students with automobiles 
must pay a $20 annual parking fee. Private 
instruction in music is approximately $210 
per year for one hour a week and $105 per 
year for one-half hour. A graduation fee, $15 
to cover cost of diploma and rental of cap 
and gown, is charged graduating seniors. 

All accounts are due and payable on a term 
basis September 1 and January 15. All un- 
paid accounts from a prior term must be paid 
before students will be permitted to register 
for the current term. All accounts must be 
paid by December 1 and May 1 before stu- 

dents will be permitted to take final exami- 
nations, obtain a transfer of credits, or be 
graduated. Specific financial information may 
be obtained by writing the Comptroller. The 
booklet "Financial Guidance for Students" 
covers, in detail, the financial requirements 
and obligations of students enrolled in 
Florida Presbyterian College. Guides and 
rules for payments are contained therein. 

In order to meet changing economic condi- 
tions, the Board of Trustees reserves the 
right to revise charges as conditions may 
warrant; the current year's charges will not 
be adjusted during the academic year. 


Financing Your Education 

Generally, half of the total comprehensive 
costs, minus acceptance fees and/or room 
deposits, is due at entrance in September and 
the remainder by January 15. Upon matricu- 
lation, the student [and/or his parents] is 
obligated for comprehensive costs for the en- 
tire term. The college cooperates with insur- 
ance and tuition plan companies to make 
monthly installment payments possible when 
this method of payment of comprehensive 
costs more nearly fits the family's budget 
than lump sum payments. 

Aid To Students 

Financial aid is made available to students 
by the Scholarship Committee based upon 
financial need, academic performance and 

Financial need is determined by an evalua- 
tion of the Parents' Confidential Statement 
by the College Scholarship Service, Prince- 
ton, New Jersey. A student's financial aid is 
generally provided in a package form com- 
prised of scholarship, or grant, work aid and 
loan. Students applying for financial aid are 
automatically considered for any of these 
various forms of assistance. 

The college's financial aid program em- 
phasizes the "self-help" concept. The major- 
ity of students receiving financial aid will be 
participating in the work scholarship pro- 
gram or one of the college loan programs. 
Student loans are good business: a college 
education considerably increases earning 
power, whereas most loans require little or 
no interest. In some instances, loans may be 
repaid partly in service instead of cash. The 
college has endowed loan funds, federal- 


guaranteed loan applications and also par- 
ticipates in the National Defense Student 
Loan Program. 

To provide students with the opportunity 
to earn some of their college expenses, 
Florida Presbyterian has created many part- 
time jobs on campus. These jobs range from 
work in the cafeteria, buildings, grounds, to 
faculty and staff offices. It is recommended 
that freshmen not undertake part-time em- 
ployment off campus. To complete the work 
scholarship program, outstanding upperclass- 
men are employed as student instructors, as- 
sisting professors in teaching and research 

Florida Presbyterian College operates with 
the policy that every qualified student should 
be helped to work out financial problems. 
Requests for further information regarding 
financial aid should be directed to the As- 
sistant Dean of Students.

The Faculty 

The quality of Florida Presbyterian College 
education depends heavily on the men who 
invest their lives as teachers and scholars 
here. Sixty-nine percent of the faculty pos- 
sess the earned doctorate degree. A glance at 
the faculty roster will show that they have 
gained their degrees at such institutions as 
Yale, the University of Chicago, the Univer- 
sities of Minnesota, Michigan, North Carolina, 
and Florida, Duke, Columbia, Brown, and Cor- 
nell. Not every student comes to know every 
professor, but the professors that students 
may get to know during their stay at Florida 
Presbyterian include a famous poet and 
Shakespeare scholar who recently partici- 
pated in a Nobel Symposium, an historian 
who recently published two studies of the 
Incas and is currently preparing a study of 
the Aztecs, and a leading authority on the 
ecology of freshwater lakes. 

As the many and varied professional tal- 
ents of the faculty provide a solid founda- 
tion for the academic program, some of their 
extracurricular interests add flavor to the 
community. The President is an airplane 
pilot; the Dean of Students is a judo expert; 
a professor of philosophy builds organs in 
his spare time; the chaplain and one of the 
sociology professors are avid ham radio op-

Heartbeat of a College 

In no other area was so much painstaking 
care and concern evidenced at Florida Pres- 
byterian College as in the selection of its 
faculty — the heartbeat of any such institu- 
tion. Regardless of status or tenure, every 
faculty member finally selected combines 
scholarship and teaching ability to an extra- 
ordinary degree. 

The criteria for acceptance, as set forth 
by the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher 
with depth and command in his field of spe- 
cialization and a breadth of cultural back- 
ground enabling him to relate his own disci- 
pline to the totality of experience; who 
demonstrates personal and professional com- 
petence and growth through research, publi- 
cation and professional participation; who 
inspires students with his respect for his 
profession by his ability, his character and 
his conduct; who has the ability himself to 
think creatively and objectively and to in- 
spire his students to do likewise; who ex- 
tends himself to his students in service, to 
his colleagues in cooperation and to his com- 
munity in concern; and finally, whose char- 
acter the students will want to emulate.

The number of each course conveys the following information: Courses 
numbered 100 to 299 are primarily for freshmen and sophomores, 300 to 
499 for juniors and seniors. In general, odd-numbered courses are offered 
in the first semester; even-numbered courses are offered in the second 

Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their 
faculty advisors. Near the close of the school year each freshman is ex- 
pected to prepare a tentative course program for the remaining three years 
of college and to present it to his advisor for critical evaluation and coun- 
sel. At the end of the second year of study each student must submit for 
approval to the Committee on Academic Reviev^ his projected program. A 
student may revise his program at any time thereafter v\7ith the approval of 
a major advisor. 

This catalogue lists the Core courses, which all students must take, and 
also the courses according to academic divisions and academic disciplines 
within each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture- 
discussion periods per week supplemented by other periods, studios, or 

Students receiving the endorsement of the professors in their major field 
may take the equivalent of two courses each semester during their junior 
and senior years in a program of guided independent study and research 
which should culminate in an acceptable senior thesis. Every student must 
pass a comprehensive examination in his major field unless he writes a 
senior thesis. 

Gore Program 

The college is a community of scholars each of whom has his own special 
interests and talents. The Core program brings together faculty and stu- 
dents from all disciplines to work together toward the development of 
intellect and sensitivity. Core uses a variety of methods of inquiry. Great 
works are analyzed as self-contained entities and in their relation to a so- 
cial and historical context. Different methods of examination are presented 
and exemplified. The origins of Western culture are examined and atten- 
tion is given to the interactions of the West with other cultures. Current 
issues are debated and students are encouraged to develop sensitive and 
informed judgments on the questions of value that perplex contemporary 


society. Special concern is accorded to the Judaeo-Christian tradition and 
to the role of religious commitment in making judgments and acting upon 

Each student is involved in Core during each semester of residence. 
Scheduling of the four-year program is paced to pique interest, to balance 
broad surveys with profound examination of ideas and methods, and to 
evolve from requirements to options. 

The Core Cinema Series presents feature length films biweekly, bringing 
scheduled involvement in Core during the first two years to an average of 
six hours per week. 

101, 102 Western Civilization 

The entire class attends two one-hour lectures or presentations each week. 
Special emphasis is given to methods of investigation. Small discussion groups 
meet with a professor for two additional sessions of an hour and a half each. 
The discussion groups examine in detail the documents, presentations, and topics 
under consideration. Discussion leaders supervise the writing program of the 
students assigned to them, encouraging the development of the ability to write 
clear prose, to respond sensitively and argue cogently. 

201, 202 Western Civilization 

Using the same lecture-discussion format as 101, 102, the program provides for 
limited selection of works by discussion groups. 

300 Area Studies 

This phase of the program features comparative studies of the works and 
institutions of foreign cultures, noting the exchange and interaction between 
them and our Western tradition. Core 300 programs provide three lectures or 
presentations per week with occasional discussion group meetings. Course credit 
for periods of study abroad may be received through the office of the Core Director.

Soviet institutions and introduces the student to the present realities of the Soviet 

401, 402 Christian Faith and Great Issues 

Major problems in personal and social ethics receive special attention in the 
senior year. The basis of the program is a series of noted individuals, invited to 
the campus to perform, argue, demonstrate their skill, and otherwise address 
themselves to the issue under consideration. A staff of faculty and student repre- 
sentatives select issues from among those nominated by students. Each study 
group works with its faculty discussion leader in preparing its own approach to 
the issue: selecting documents, assigning oral and written presentations of views, 
and arriving at a method of evaluation.

333, 334 Modernization 

An interdisciplinary course in the problems facing developing nations. Taught 
cooperatively by faculty in political science, economics and sociology. 


Ordinarily a tv^o-year program of physical education is required of each 
student prior to entrance into the Junior year. The objective of the course 
is to develop in the student appropriate attitudes, skills and knowledge for 
leisure time and recreational activities appropriate to his needs and inter- 

The program consists of a two-hour laboratory period each week supple- 
mented occasionally by special lectures and demonstrations. The labora- 
tory period is devoted to individual sports such as archery, fencing, golf, 
gymnastics, riding, sailing, swimming, tennis, bowling and weight lifting. 
Each student is expected to attain a certain level of proficiency in four 
skills and at least one laboratory must be taken in each of the four follow- 
ing groups: swimming, boating, body development and recreational sports. 

It should be noted that entering students may receive credit for a skill 
by demonstrating a proficiency in it. Proficiency tests will be scheduled 
periodically during the year. 

The above requirements may be waived or altered for individual stu- 
dents: upon recommendation of the college physician, upon recommenda- 
tion of the Director of Physical Education with approval of the Dean of the 
College, and upon transfer entrance at the Junior and Senior level.

following: 301, 302, 304, 311, 312, 314, (B] one Research Seminar, and [C] a 
Comprehensive Examination, or Thesis. Courses in other disciplines such 
as biology, chemistry, mathematics, and sociology, may be strongly rec- 
ommended as supporting courses in individual cases. Psychology 201 is a 
prerequisite for all courses numbered above 300; Psychology 202 is a pre- 
requisite for 301, and for 313.

The remainder of the psychology program is a comprehensive integrated 
program of study containing the following elements: (1] A series of lec- 
tures relating to major areas of psychological concern (see list belov^]. 
These lectures provide material unavailable to students in any other form, 
e.g., by describing original theoretical formulations, integrative systemati- 
zation, or research findings. (2) Extensive reading lists and annotated bibli- 
ographies. [3] Frequent open discussion seminars over preannounced 
topics. (4) Frequent counseling sessions between professors and students
